    If it needs to be in MLA format, then it should be something like..

    "this person said this and that" (24). make sure the period goes outside of the parenthesis (which is where you put the page number(s).

    If you need anymore help with formating and things, OWL purdue is a great website to look at

    “Exact quotation” (Secret Scribbled Notebooks, Horniman, 2004, p.24).

    There is a further explanation on Julie's blog
